The Crow: Fresnadillo to direct

Thu April 7, 2011 Return to Film News

  • Juan Carlos Fresnadillo ("28 Weeks Later") has signed on to direct a re-invention of "The Crow", for Relativity Media and producer Edward R. Pressman.
    The original 1994 smash hit film was based on the comic book series and comic strip by James O'Barr and followed the iconic cult character Eric Draven, who's resurrected as The Crow to avenge his wife's murder so he can reunite with her in the hereafter.
    Stephen Norrington was attached to write and direct the remake back in 2008, with Nick Cave writing the most recent draft of the script last year.

  • A new writer is sought to co-write the new script with Fresnadillo.

  • Filming is targeted to start in the fall.
